Big Brother really changed the game.
Last night, host Julie Chen announced that America had voted in favor of the four Big Brother coaches rejoining the game. The twist that came afterward was masterful.
The coaches each had to go into the diary room, one at a time, and inside there was a giant reset button. If even one coach pressed the reset button, then every coach had to join the game as contestants.
Britney, Janelle and Dan all decided to hit the reset button, while Boogie opted not to. But his fate was sealed once Britney pressed it first. And now we have more contestants vying for the $500,000 prize. Things just got very interesting.
Or have they? Do you think the coaches rejoining the game will make this season better, or was this season better because it had former Big Brother stars as coaches? Now that they're all officially contestants again…does that make this season less exciting to watch? And how about the bigger question: Was this all fair?
Now that they're in the house, the four coaches basically had immunity from eviction for an entire month. But Chen tells Entertainment Weekly that there is nothing suspicious or unfair about the twist. "Had Danielle gotten bounced last week it would have meant bye bye Dan and he would have been right there next to her on the bench talking to me on eviction night."
Power dynamics will shift, people will team up…it's like a whole new season of Big Brother happened with one simple press of a button. Are you looking forward to what happens next? Or do you wish they'd kept things the way there were?
